    I had a very successful time working here. Great co workers to be around for guidance if needed.

    I have been working at Xperience Fitness full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    all clients were handed off to you from the sales staff, as many clients as you could handle

    Cons

    some immature co workers
    club manager could have been more professional

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the the club manager position, actually put someone in that position that knows how to run a fitness facility

    Pros

    fun people to work with when management isnt breathing down your neck. 2 hour breaks, so plenty of time for a solid workout or nap

    Cons

    150 to 250 phone calls a day to "help more people than every other gym" but mainly just needs to be done so that the doors can stay open due to low cost for a membership

    Pros

    Fellow employees were all great
    Free top level membership

    Cons

    Monthly sale goals
    Low hourly pay while not training
    12 hour days
    Long training mainly focused on selling

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the pressure of selling off the trainers so they can do their job there is an entire department to dedicated to sales. You would not expect a teacher to come into a school and bring in students. Hire good people and pay them well and it would be cheaper than being a state of perpetual hiring.

    Great company and excellent values, but poor upper level management.

    Pros

    The scheduling is flexible for most employees, which contributes to a great work/life balance. Overall employees between all locations get along well.

    Cons

    Upper level management does not provide direction when assigning tasks. There is a "tell" vs "show" approach to training. The culture and values of the company are carried out poorly by the majority of upper level managers. Poor training on company policy.

    Pros

    Great People to work with, you are pretty much just making phone calls with Friends and giving people tours of the gym.

    Cons

    No benefits other than cut rate optional insurance which is too expensive compared to what you make. Which money is another con. As a Sales Person you are the most important force in the company but get paid the least minus Front Desk and Cleaners. Company has ridiculous expectations and goals per month. If you miss a day of work, you need to come in on your day off (Even if its a holiday such as xmas which is uncontrollable). Lastly, even when weather conditions are terrible, even dangerous.. You still come in or you could potentially get written up or fired!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Stop Micro Managing
    -Loosen up on missed days
    -Create a revolving schedule where people get weekends off

    Pros

    It was great work environment to work in

    Cons

    The page was not adequate for all the work I had to do (all of the managers paperwork went to me), got offered a raise 3 times and it never happened, they always kept forgetting to send it to corporate office.

    Pros

    Great work environment
    Free employee membership
    Advancement opportunities
    Young and fast growing company
    High bonus potential

    Cons

    High pressure sales
    High demand
    Not for the weak hearted

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Customer Service should be more of a priority and we would hands down have the best gym in the world. More structure when dealing with complaints would make customers and employees a lot happier!
